You may wish to know that Hilary Atkinson at MLHS has details of the gravestone inscriptions which were recorded over 30 years ago.

Contact Hilary via the Marple Local History Society web site here:

If you are looking for someone specific and there are no records at All Saints it might be worth looking at Mellor church as I know from family history that there were Marple burials at Mellor church at least in the first half of the twentieth century. My grandfather and great grandparents are tucked in there despite living in All Saints parish.
Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

I agree with you about the peace and tranquility Alan, I have spent many hours sitting on the corner overlooking Mellor and just watching the cloud scudding across the valley.    A true gift from God.  In fact the scene was painted for me by a local artist - Arthur Pateman. 
As a genealogist I appreciate your efforts.  Thanks

Alan
The burials for All Saints have been produced in microfiche by North Cheshire FHS, but your website will be another source for all family history researchers who cannot get to Marple. I am sure it will be much appreciated by many people.

Good luck with your project.

Dear Tony

Thank you for your well intended advice on the website.

I will most certainly contact the organisation.

For your information and perhaps in anticipation of your advice, I have recently send a communication to the church advising them of my intentions. The Rev Parkinson is currently on holiday and I entertain no doubt that he will respond to me.

As far as wasting my time is concerned, well I need the exercise and I also enjoy the peace and tranquility of the churchyard and it does make me reflect on my own mortality.

Kindest regards

Alan

Before you spend a great deal of time writing down details of all the graves at All Saints you should contact Hilary at Marple Local History Society. They may already have details of all the graves.

I would also suggest that you check with the Vicar to make sure he is happy with you doing this.

"find a grave.com"

Here is a link:
